Reiterate the Repeat: Sky Kim and Keun Young Park

Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery
Art Department
University of Nevada, Reno
1664 N. Virginia St

Reiterate the Repeat
August 29 - September 23

Please note the two public events for this exhibition:
Thursday, September 22, 5:30pm: Closing Lecture by Keun Young Park. Please note the change of venue: Lecture will be given in Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, Wells Fargo Auditorium, Rm 124. Following the artist's talk, the closing reception will take place in Sheppard Gallery, Church Fine Arts, 6:30 - 8pm.
Thursday, September 11, new location for the lecture: Opening Lecture with Sky Kim, Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, Room 124 (Ground Floor), followed by a reception in Sheppard Gallery, 6:30 - 8pm

Both living in Jersey City, New Jersey but formally unknown to each other, Sky Kim and Keun Young Park create their artwork through very time-consuming and repetitive manners. This exhibition will consider how an image is created from this approach to artmaking. Park constructs “micro-collages” made from tiny pieces of torn up photographs punctured by a pin, while Kim creates large-scale scrolls by making thousands of marks, rendering voluptuous drawings in a variety of media. Please join us for the exhibition and to hear the artists discuss their work; this exhibition will have two artist lectures, one by each artist, at the beginning and closing of the show.

Sky Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and received a Master’s Degree in Painting at Pratt Institute. She is a recipient of the National Museum of Contemporary Art’s National Korean Art Competition Awards and a Pratt Institute Art Grant.

Keun Young Park was born in Seoul, South Korea, where she received her BFA and MFA Degrees in Sculpture at Seoul National University. Her awards include being an A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship and Exhibition Recipient; the winner of Curator’s Choice - a competition for the ‘Artist Talk on Art’ organization; and the Juror’s award at ‘Small Works’ – an international competition at NYU gallery.

Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 11am - 5pm, Friday, 11am - 2pm
